I have been a patient of Dr. Pifer and Uptown Vision for ten years. I have found them to very honest, caring and personable.  They always do the little things to make me feel special. I would highly recommend them to maintain the health of your eyes and to satisfy any of your optical needs.

I have been a patient at Uptown Vision Center for eight years and I couldn’t be more pleased. I am always examined in a timely manner, the doctors and staff are incredible, and they use cutting edge technologies to ensure my eye health.  It’s always a bright spot in my day when I get to visit!  If you are looking for an Optometrist in the downtown area, I would highly recommend UVC.
